Hopefully the 2014 season will bring me more luck than the 2013 season.

I was just starting to think about getting back out there and see how it is.  I'm in the south end so will start trying Des Moines, Redondo, Dash Point and Les Davis.  Will report back as I find the time to try each spot.  Dash Point is a tough one in the summer because they close the pier by the time it's dark.

I was thinking about taking the kids quid jigging this weekend (never been, so I'm a super newbie).  Salmon has been too slow to justify fuel, so we're changing things up and trying something new.  We're in the Port Townsend/Sequim area, and curious how the squid fishing has been, as well as any tips you'd be willing to share.

Squidding in Bremerton is HOT now! People catching 8-9 inch Jumbos and filling their buckets.  How is Settle waterfront? Has anyone been out there?  This could be a good year....

I was only at the pier for 1 small school, got a couple. Do the Des Moines marina security guys ticket you if you're parked by the fishing pier after 10? Seemed like I was leaving as it was getting good.

After 10:00pm you can be assured that if you don't have a parking permit. YOUR car can be towed at owner's expense or be issued a citation ticket for parking without a permit. Permit cost $10.75. Ticket cost $240.00.

It's not the security guys check the parking lot. The city of Des Moines Police themselves are actively checking right after 10:00pm. If you parked at the north parking lot you need a parking pass. Warning signs are posted everywhere in the parking lot and at the entrance stating North Parking lot is closed after 10:00pm and you need a parking permit to be able to park after that time.

Ah, I never realized you could get a permit! I'll have to do that; leaving at 10 is a bummer when everyone is pulling in squid. 

 

On another note, was there last night for about 2.5 hours. It was pretty slow; managed about 15. The wind didn't help.

The Pink Salmon aren't running this year so hopefully there will be more squid without them gobbling them up!  LOL...thinking of hitting Redondo tomorrow evening and giving it the first shot of the year.
